Benghazi, Libya, has become training hub for Islamist fighters

Every week, about a dozen Syrians arrive at Benghazi’s airport for what’s described as insurgent training. When they fly out, they’re carrying fake Libyan passports, according to three officials familiar with the comings and goings of foreigners at the airport. The officials’ accounts of the officials offer more evidence that the city has become a regional hub for Islamist extremists seeking to hone their combat skills.
